Left Hand Laurel: Zero Waste Volunteers
BY LIZ EMMETT-MATTOX
Niwot is going Zero Waste. But changes like this do not always come easy. Making sure that recyclables and compostables are kept separate and that no trash makes its way into the bins at the Rock N Rails concert series this summer was the job of a dedicated group of middle school volunteers.
Throughout the summer eighth-graders Alex Arnold, Teddy Galanthay, Gabe Hyde, Simon Julien, Seth Lentz, Griffin Mitchel, Carter Osteen, Logan Pudalov and Sam Rollman did whatever it took to make sure that no cross-contamination occurred between the compost and recycling bins.Read more: Left Hand Laurel: Zero Waste Volunteers October 2012

County Ignores Niwot Petitions - Countywide PID On 2013 Ballot
BY KIM GLASSCOCK
Niwot Petitions Denied Without Hearing
Boulder County commissioners have apparently denied a petition from Niwot residents to put a proposal on the November ballot to create a Niwot Public Improvement District to fund fixing Niwot’s subdivision and local access roads.
Instead, commissioners are debating moving forward with their own countywide proposal to fund rehabilitating all paved unincorporated Boulder County subdivision roads.
The petition drive was spearheaded by the Niwot Community Association, which has been working for nearly two years to explore whether there is community support to create an improvement district to fund fixing Niwot’s roads. The group settled on creating a PID, and in June the results of an advisory ballot requested by the commissioners showed that the PID proposal was favored on 67 percent of the 894 ballots.Read more: County Ignores Niwot Petitions - Countywide PID On 2013 Ballot

And The Winner Is… BY NELLIE NIBNOSE
Our readers have spoken and we at the Courier have listened. As a result, we can all breath easier now that the Courier duck has a name. In case you missed the big reveal at the 6th Annual Left Hand Valley Courier Duck Race, our darling ducky’s new name is (drum roll please)...
Our thanks to long-time Gunbarrel resident Theo Dierks for the quack up of a suggestion. Theo won the $20 gift certificate so generously supplied by Whistlestop Frozen Yogurt.

Laurie Grassmeyer Named To Elite Group
BY KAREN COPPERBERG
Laurie Grassmeyer CDPE, GRI, with RE/MAX Professionals, and one of the Courier’s own, has been honored in the September issue of 5280 magazine as a Five Star Professional Real Estate Agent.
Five Star Professional conducts research throughout the US and Canada to identify professionals who provide quality service to their clients.
5280, along with Crescendo Business Services, surveyed Denver-area residents who purchased a home valued at $100,000 or more, as well as 10,000 magazine subscribers. Surveys were also sent to mortgage and title companies, resulting in the elite group, which represents less than seven percent of licensed agents in the Denver area.
This year, out of 13,700 Metro Denver residents holding a real estate license, only 927 of the top-scoring real estate agents made the list, and Grassmeyer was one of them.
